{Meal Planning} Pinning and Planning Our Dinner – Week of February 28

Dr. Seuss’s Birthday falls on March 2 and for that reason, my son’s kindergarten class is celebrating all week with fun dress up day. Today as my clever little fox put on his wacky socks, he asked me, “Mommy, can we eat something special this week for Dr. Seuss’s birthday?”

As you can see, I’ve created a monster with my “every day is worth celebrating” philosophy on life. All those food related holidays and observances has lead to my children expecting some holiday-themed dinner.

Guilty as charged.

“So, Liam I am, would you like some Green Eggs and Ham for dinner this week?”

“Ewwwwwww…that sounds gross!”

I’ll either have to go with a sweet version of green eggs ham like these…

Or perhaps I’ll make Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes, if my kids please.

Apples on top would make it a healthy day.

Or we could try a Cat in the Hat yogurt parfait.

Because there are so many ways to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday!


Since I do not like too many sweets, here is our dinner for the rest of the week.

Sunday – Grilled Buffalo Chicken Breast Sandwiches topped Broccoli Blue Cheese Slaw

Meatless Monday – Roasted Broccoli and White Cheddar Quesadillas

Tuesday – Green Eggs and Ham

Wednesday – French Bread Pizza and a mixed green salad

Thursday – (Brinner) Veggie and Potato Skillets

Friday – Dinner out
